Scott Bunch is currently an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is primarily interested in the mechanical properties of atomically thin materials such as graphene. He received his B.S. degree in Physics from Florida International University (2000) and a Ph.D. in Physics (2008) from Cornell University where he studied the electrical and mechanical properties of graphene. After finishing his Ph.D, he spent 3 months as a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics at Cornell University studying nanoelectromechanical systems before joining the faculty at CU Boulder in 2008. His awards include a Ph.D. fellowship from Lucent Technologies, Bell Laboratories (2000-2004), the DARPA MTO Young Faculty Award (2008), and the NSF CAREER Award (2011).
